This sounds like one of the excuses my brother would have made after pissing himself in public. "Oh no, it was that dog at that lady's house."

Most of the Conservative response to this event seems to be, "they thought she was a terrorist and that's why they did that."

Which flies in the face of all reason as Fox has been working very hard to make sure we all understand that ONLY Muslims can be terrorists.

I is confused.

Sort of on-topic and while I want to share this horror (you have to read all the way to the end but just in case you start throwing up in your mouth and can't make it, it's a FAKE story about how Christian kids are being harassed by gay activists and killing themselves).



In case you can't get to the bottom, here's the final, disgusting paragraph:

"These eight cases are all true except for one thing: The Christians who were bullied by gays and gay activists are all still alive. Not a single one has committed suicide. That is because they have centered their lives around Jesus Christ, rather than their sexual identity. And no amount of bullying can change my mind about that."

Hmmm . . . old, white, ignorant, bigot -- could this be Sarah Palin's 2012 running mate?
Sep 28, 2010 ohbalto commented on If This Boehner Story Is True....
The problem is this: Republicans don't vote based on facts. They don't even vote based on what they read or (really) what they're told.

Republicans vote based on what they WANT to believe. What they WANT to be true. That's how you get trailer-trash voting to extend tax cuts for millionaires -- they honestly believe that's going to be them someday and, when that day comes, they don't want to pay taxes on their millions.

Boehner might have had an affair and he might not have. Your average Republican voter isn't going to care, though, because they don't want to believe it, so clearly it never happened . . .

I always remember my Junior High School class elections one year. One of the candidates for class president promised to "get a soda machine" for the cafeteria. Another candidate promised "half-day Fridays". The third candidate -- who received almost no votes (though he did receive mine) -- simply said; "they're both lying. All a class president can really do is lead meetings of the student council."

It was eye-opening, to say the least. Oh, and the guy who promised the soda machine -- which we didn't get, of course -- won in a tight margin over the half-Friday guy. I've always wondered if it was because his lie was somehow more believable.

Um, guys, you're missing the point. When an AMERICAN stabs a MUSLIM, that's not "felony attempted murder" or "hate crime".

I think it's Option Number Three: this is none of our damned business.
